8. THIRTEEN (2003)

Catherine Hardwicke was already a successful production designer when she came to Sundance in 2003 with her directorial debut, THIRTEEN. After her controversial tale of teen angst became the talk of the festival, her young stars, Evan Rachel Wood and Nikki Reed, became Hollywood fixtures, and Hardwicke herself became a sought after director. She hasn’t worked as a production designer since.
